Facebook is always ahead with developing and adding new features every month. As of now, they have come up with a 2-step authentication feature. Unlike Google authentication, Facebook authentication is little different. They have different options for 2-step authentication, which is normally not available on Google or any other platform and this 2-factor authentication by Facebook works in a different way and is a very smart feature.
This 2-step authentication is a security perk that will help you to add more privacy and protection to your Facebook account. So, if you set up this feature on your Facebook account, you will be asked to enter a special code each time you login into the system. And every time when someone tries to open your account you will get an alert message that someone is trying to access your account. So, in this way your account is 100% safe.

(2) Scroll completely down and then you can see an option called Two-Factor Authentication and then click on Edit.
